Grow Climate-Friendly Lawns and Gardens

To help combat climate change Safer Pest Control Project is launching a new program called Chicago Grows Green. Chicago Grows Green is an educational program that provides the information you will need to grow in a way that reduces your contribution to climate change, helps your lawn and garden adapt to an already changing environment, and produces beautiful outdoor spaces. Together, by making better decisions on how we maintain our outdoor spaces, we will have a big impact on the health of the environment and our communities. Take action to combat climate change in your backyard by following these five steps:

1. Fertilize Organically
2. Grow Chemical Free
3. Water Smartly
4. Chose Native Plants
5. Use Climate-Friendly Tools

Through the Chicago Grows Green program, Safer Pest Control Project is also working with local hardware and lawn and garden stores to make information on using sustainable lawn and garden products and practices available in stores. By participating in this program, these stores are demonstrating their commitment to improving their communities. Click here for a map of participating stores.
